"Omellets, Chainsaws and a Big Refinery"

Howe Road has a few apartment buildings on its southern portion, but it is mostly a good place to go to get home improvement supplies. Howe Road runs north parallel to railroad tracks (on the eastern side). On the western side, there are a series of two to three story office buildings with nice newly paved parking lots and young trees. On its northern end, you will find places to buy carpets, lawn mowers, power saws, mechanical tools and lumber. You can also find auto repair shops, sporting goods and specialized work shoes. In short, this is a big destination for beefy pick-up driving guys who know how to make caste iron bend to their will.

At the end of Howe Road you will find Pegg’s Western Grill. If you love eating your morning omelet while staring out a refinery, this is definitely the place for you. Beware though, every so often you may have to shelter in place while one of the many local chemical plants blows a cloud of toxic fumes over the area. I guess that’s why property values are so reasonable in Martinez.
  • Good Hardware/Construction Equipment
  • The Refinery
  • Rough Looking Area
